I agree. The TV show's much better.
6 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

I hate to admit it, but I agree with most of the comments here. Rather than Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick as the aunts, Nick Bakay as Salem, we have an entirely different cast. The only ones that are the same as they appeared on the show were Melissa Joan Hart and Michelle Beudoin. But there are quite a few notable differences. Sabrina Sawyer instead of Sabrina Spellman, a British Salem instead of the one we all know and love. The movie was okay, but it just doesn't compare to the greatness of the TV show. I recommend "Sabrina Goes to Rome" or "Sabrina Down Under." Those movies are more up-to-date.
